“I am single and ready to mingle” Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir discloses about his not being back with Deepika Padukone, humbly refuses to be the youth icon, about Raajneeti, Power, Politics and much more in a rendezvous with Lipika Varma.

ranbir kapoorYou and Deepika were seen together again? So all’s, well in your paradise again.

It’s wrong of everybody to assume that we are back together again. We just bumped into each other, we were along with few of our friends, and we watched the movie together. That’s all I can say as of now. I am single and there’s nobody in my life now. When we were together, we were open about our relationship. It is unfair to link me and her. She comes from a good family and hopefully will get married soon and settle down. Laughingly adds,” Yes! I’m single and ready to mingle.”

What is Raajneeti all about? Would you choose power or money?

My character is based on the epic character Arjun. It’s a film about family and relationships with politics as a backdrop and we are not trying to preach anything through the film. Working with Prakash was a learning experience and we are actors who love to do variety of roles. I feel honored to be chosen by Prakash Jha for this particular role. I presume I will chose power over money.

parmeet sethiIn a brief chit – chat with actor turned director Parmeet Sethi speaks his heart to Lipika Varma.

What is Badmaash Company all about?

This story is about four friends. I have always been reading about different scams. Telgi scam, bank scam. The society around you dictates you at times. I was influenced by these scams that I would read and always wondered how they got away with it. It’s nothing real on reel. This is a fictional story which I finished writing in six days.

I Wish I Was A Part Of Films Like 3 Idiots, Dhoom or for that Matter Krissh – Shahid Kapoor

Is Badmaash Company a film on scam jobs?

At the face of it, it may seem to be a film on a con job scam, where the protagonists do wrong things in the right way, but in effect it is actually a journey of four different friends. It is about their coming of age, their relationship, their understanding of life etc. A lot happen to them fast and the impact it has on their lives forms the crux of the subject. It is a film which has an emotional base. I feel that any day any film with emotional base will connect to people easily.

The Way the Actors are Linked By the Media makes me Wonder whether I Am Working in Film Industry or Dating Industry! – Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif tells Jyothi Venkatesh that her role in Rajneeti is not based on Sonia Gandhi but Draupadi from Mahabharat

What is Rajneeti about?

Rajneeti has a popular subject. It is about the politics of life. It is a paradox which is also happening in your own family. It is something which happens between two lovers or for that matter a husband and a wife. It is a film on relationships. What I like about Rajneeti is that it is a film which is full of complexities in character. The film is about insecurities suffered by the character played by Ajay Devgn.

Katrina Kaif seems to have learnt the Rajneeti of the filmdom

Katrina Kaif surely has proved her acting caliber on the silver screen. From her first film Boom to Rajneeti She has experimented with her look, performances and above all she has improved dancing as well as her speech skills too. Undoubtedly, the directors and the producers have broken the myth that she is just a glam doll. The credit nonetheless goes to Prakash Jha for his film Rajneeti in which Kats has taken the trouble of dubbing the dialogues in pure Hindi.
